Fifteen is going to turn a corner. It has to.
The world is closing in on Greta. She can’t bear to leave her childhood and floats in a bubble of loserdom with her only friend Elliott, until her parents throw her a surprise 15th birthday party and she’s flung into a parallel place, a world that’s weirdly erotic, violent and thoroughly ludicrous – only there can she find herself. Based on the critically acclaimed production by Windmill Theatre, Girl Asleep is a journey into the absurd, scary and beautiful heart of the teenage mind.
